Description

The SIMD geographic access to services domain is calculated by ranking and standardising a series of indicators, which are then weighted and combined. The indicators used are as follows:

Average drive time to a primary school

Average drive time to a secondary school

Average drive time to a GP surgery

Average drive time to a post office

Average drive time to a retail centre

Average drive time to a petrol station

Average public transport travel time to a retail centre

Average public transport travel time to a GP surgery

Average public transport travel time to a post office

The technical notes for SIMD16 can be found here.

Quality Management

For some data zones, where a public transport time could not be calculated for all output areas within the data zone, travel times were estimated using drive times.

Drive times have been imputed to 190 minutes for at least some output areas for one or more services, as there was either no car ferry connection within the time window considered, or the journey was longer than the maximum journey time of 180 minutes

Accuracy and Reliability

Coherence and Comparability

The services used are the same as for SIMD 2012, however there have been improvements to the methodology in SIMD16 including: The new software calculates journey times slightly differently, leading to shorter journeys which more closely match the real journey times likely to occur.

Relevance

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) combines seven different domains (aspects) of deprivation:

  • Income
  • Employment
  • Health
  • Education, Skills and Training
  • Geographic Access to Services
  • Crime
  • Housing

This dataset contains the indicators used to calculate the SIMD geographic access to services domain.
